Lil Nas X Apologizes To Trans People For Mocking 'Transitioning'

Lil Nas X Apologizes To Trans Community After Accusations Of Mocking Transitioning With Photo

Lil Nas X issued an apology on Tuesday (March 15) after social media users accused him of offending people who identify as transgender.

“Apologies to the trans community I def handled that situation with anger instead of considering why it was not cool. Much love to you guys. Sorry,” the Old Town Road artist tweeted.

A now-deleted tweet sparked the backlash. In the post, Lil Nas X shared a photo of a woman who resembles him. His caption said, “the surgery was a success,” with an added pink hearts emoticon.

But, six minutes after apologizing, the rapper returned to the hot seat for his dismissive response to a Black trans woman and artist named Edge Slayer. She had slammed Lil Nas X’s apology, asking him to repair the damage from his tweet in “material ways” instead.

“Baby this apology ain’t it! You need to apologize too the trans community in material ways that include money, sharing your platform to raise awareness and just keep it! This is fake as hell,” Edge Slayer tweeted at Nas.

He replied, “girl eat my a*s.” His tweeted response received over 8.8 million impressions in less than 24 hours after being published on Tuesday afternoon. Critics have deemed the response as dismissive and disrespectful, with some pledging to stop being fans.
